The Infamous Goulash

If Aaron offers to make you dinner, this is what you'll get.  People rave about it's goodness.  I am warning you to eat it at your own risk.  :)  Here are the directions, per Aaron.


1 lb. of ground beef
1 lb. of bacon
1 lb. of butter (that is 4 sticks)
2 onions, chopped
a bunch of potatoes cut up (probably 10-12 or so)
"seasoning" (says Aaron)
2 tbls. minced garlic


1.  In a large skillett, cook the bacon.  Set aside.  Reserve about 1/2 cup of the grease.

2. Cook the ground beef in the bacon grease.  Set aside the beef, but keep the grease.

3.  Add the butter, potatoes, onions, "seasonings" and garlic to the leftover grease.  Cook "a long time" until potatoes are soft

4. Once potatoes and onions are soft, add the beef and bacon back in the mix, cook for a little while longer and serve.

**My suggestions: Save the bacon grease, dump the beef grease, and only use 1 (maybe 2) sticks of butter.  I also have made this with chicken instead of the beef, added carrots, and topped with cheese, with a lot less grease, and it was pretty good.
